The speed, wind control and accuracy of placements are the essential requirements in precast buildings along with all standard safety features of tower cranes. The wind acting on the tower crane as well as the big precast segments need to be strictly controlled for proper placement. A small collision may lead to fatal accidents or may damage the segments leading to heavy losses and delay in completion of the project. We are supplying these tower cranes with inbuilt safe load indicators (SLI) and anti-collision systems. So safety, selection, placement, and reliability of tower cranes are very important in timely completion of Precast buildings.
We have supplied 86 flat top tower cranes of 6t capacity with rail travel arrangement to BG Shirke Construction Technology Pvt Ltd for their DDA project Delhi in 2014, 2015 & 2016, to construct about 900 precast buildings ranging from 4 floor to 13 floor height. We also supplied BG Shirke for MHADA Mumbai projects, 3 different projects in Pune, 1 project in Chennai, and 2 projects in Bangalore. Since our customized tower cranes are proven to be economic, safe and reliable, BG Shirke has again ordered 32 flat top tower cranes of 12t capacity this year for their new DDA project in Delhi as well as 3 different projects at MHADA Pune ranging from 18 floor to 24 floors height.
Since the precast buildings are very economical, safe, long lasting and, very fast in completion, most of the government projects will be in precast type. There is a tendency from the private sector also to move towards precast buildings. In China, we have seen thousands of precast buildings starting from 20 floors to 100 floors of height being constructed by developers. The same system will be coming up in India soon and we are fully prepared to support the precast building sector.
